Leaving Madrid

Hello Friends,

This morning we leave Madrid to fly to London to switch planes, then straight to Accra, Ghana. We should arrive there about eleven o’clock this evening.


Pork Shop

Madrid must mean”meat” in Spanish, (I know that it doesn’t)  but with every beer you order you receive a tapas, usually olives or a slice of smoked/salted pork. The beautiful and ornate architecture of Madrid makes for friendly walking and drinking, especially for pork lovers.

I highly recommend the “Hostal Acapulco” for an inexpensive, clean stay in the central part of the city.

Hasta Luego,

    I would love to hear about how you keep the bugs at bay, and also what colors and styles people wear in the places you visit! – never thought to ask M while I had the chance..

    Have fun you guys!

      The women wear long colorful dresses and matching scarves on their heads covering their hair. After our bus blew a tire I wished I had one of those dresses on because you can relieve yourself on the side of the road w/some modesty. Not many bugs at all, but one baby cobra. Thankfully not on OUR doorstep – our neighbors.

      Well Christi since my last reply some bugs have found us. Not sure if it was the hike in the jungle or something in the sheets of our less than clean room, but Ron and I have our share of bites now.

    Hope you and Mare are having a wonderful time. Was just talking to Grandma Ferroni about your trip. I will stay posted to see how things go. Sorry about the dog situation, I am sure it will work out.
